Couple Sharing a Peach

情侣分享一只桃

It's not the first time we've bitten into a peach. But now at the same time it splits--half for each. Our "then" is inside its "now," its halved pit unfleshed-- what was refreshed. Two happinesses unfold from one joy, folioed. In a hotel room our moment lies with its ode inside, a red tinge, with a hinge.

 

不是第一次了 我们共咬着一颗桃子。 但如今同一时刻 它裂开 — 一人一半 我们的“过去”在它的“今天”里面 它半开的部分裸露 — 那儿曾经悠哉。 两份幸福自 一份欢欣展开着,对开。 在酒店房间里 良宵一刻裹着 赞美诗躺下, 红色的掺合物, 共一个支点。

Why I am Not a Buddhist

为什么我不是佛教徒

I love desire, the state of want and thought of how to get; building a kingdom in a soul requires desire. I love the things I've sought- you in your beltless bathrobe, tongues of cash that loll from my billfold- and love what I want: clothes, houses, redemption. Can a new mauve suit equal God? Oh no, desire is ranked. To lose a loved pen is not like losing faith. Acute desire for nut gateau is driven out by death, but the cake on its plate has meaning, even when love is endangered and nothing matters. For my mother, health; for my sister, bereft, wholeness. But why is desire suffering? Because want leaves a world in tatters? How else but in tatters should a world be? A columned porch set high above a lake. Here, take my money. A loved face in agony, the spirit gone. Here, use my rags of love.

 

我爱欲望,那种想要的感觉以及痴迷 如何去获得;在灵魂里建立王国之境 必需欲望。我喜欢我所得到的东西 你裹在无束腰的浴袍里,卷筒现金 闲置我钱柜里 - 爱着我要的:彩衣, 房子,赎回力。一套新的浅紫套装 能等同上帝吗?哦,不,欲望排着名次。 失去心爱的笔不同于失去信念。强烈的 对法国奶油蛋糕的渴望被死亡赶走, 但蛋糕在它的盘子里有着意义, 即使热爱消褪了,也没有关系。 我的母亲要健康;我的妹妹,曾经沧桑, 要完整。只是为什么渴望是受苦? 因为渴望使得世界支离破碎吗? 世界还要应该怎样,除了支离破碎? 一个圆柱门廊高高矗立在湖泊之上。 这里,拿去我的钞票。心爱的脸在痛苦中, 精神不见了。这里,使用我碎布的爱。

The Flaw

缺陷

The best thing about a hand-made pattern is the flaw. Sooner or later in a hand-loomed rug, among the squares and flattened triangles, a little red nub might soar above a blue field, or a purple cross might sneak in between the neat ochre teeth of the border. The flaw we live by, the wrong color floss, now wreathes among the uniform strands and, because it does not match, makes a red bird fly, turning blue field into sky. It is almost, after long silence, a word spoken aloud, a hand saying through the flaw, I'm alive, discovered by your eye.

 

关于手工制作的模式最好的事 是缺陷。 或迟或早,在手织地毯中, 正方形和扁平的三角形之间, 一小点红心可能飙升在蓝色领域之上, 或紫色十字会悄悄嵌入 整齐的齿赭边界。 棉线颜色不对,缺陷我们将就着, 如今花环在清一色缕线里 并且,因为它不匹配, 使得一只红鸟飞翔, 把蓝色当成了天空。 这几乎是,经过长时间的沉默,一个字 大声发出,透过缺陷,一只手在说, 我活着,被你的眼睛发现。
